This article explains how to manage videos on an Amara team.

Contact enterprise@amara.org or view all Amara Platform solutions to learn more about using Amara Teams for your subtitling projects.

 

What kind of videos can I add?

Add from a hosting site OR use a direct link 

Before adding a video to a team

Only add videos that you own or have obtained permission to share. Review Amara’s Terms of Service for more information


Public videos are easiest for allowing Amara users to view and subtitle. Learn more about video permissions in our integration articles:

 

Important: Amara does not host videos

  • We only import video information

  • Video must be embeddable and public to view on Amara

    • Check host site settings, whitelist if necessary

    • If a video is private, users will not be able to view it

    • If a video is password protected, users must enter the password to view



Who can add videos to your team?

The team’s settings determine who can add videos to your team. Administrators and owners can always add videos, and managers can be allowed based on settings. Team admins and owners can go to Team Settings Permissions to view and change the team’s settings.

 

Note: Contributors currently cannot be given permission to add videos. Email support@amara.org to let us know if you want that option for your team!
